I follow the siren`s call. Their pictures are metaphors of my obsessions. Water is omnipresent, blue, deep, mysterious, it sounds good, it is reassuring , it is worrying, it gives life and joy and it kills. Our work is supposed to please, stimulate, excite or even annoy and provoke the viewer . Sometimes even we are surprised from our pictures. We are convinced that humanity will be more and more confronted with the topics of water in the near future and its our aim to connect people thought our work with the element of Water.
